Internationally acclaimed Wagnerian soprano Lisa Gasteen has established The Lisa Gasteen National Opera School to provide elite opera coaching comparable to that of the best schools in Europe and North America.
Professionals from Australia and overseas coach advanced classical voice students and young professionals in a unique, intensive 4 week program that includes repertoire classes, voice lessons, music coaching, practical musicianship and language skills.
Public Masterclasses are held throughout the program and students perform in a Liederabend and Gala Concert. They also have the opportunity to audition for agents and professional managements within the industry. This proven program has resulted in employment with Australia’s opera companies and symphony orchestras and has created international opportunities for alumni.
The School is held annually in Brisbane at the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University in November/December.
